Food For Thought; Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is my favorite time, primarily because it means I get to spend some low-key quality time with my family. But, how could I not love the food aspect of it? Waking up at nine o’clock in the morning and breathing in the turkey aroma mixed with that of gravy and mashed potatoes and maybe even some stuffing. All these smells make me smile because I know that shortly they will be in my mouth. I love food all the way from chips to mashed potatoes to soup to steak. It is all so fulfilling! Usually I will make myself not eat all day in order to stuff myself with food at diner time, but that is usually a struggle because I love food.
I like food that has quality, not just any food like fast food or junk food or candy. There is nothing better than getting home from a long day at school and having your mom tell you she’s grilling steak and making homemade mashed potatoes. I love substance; therefore, that is my favorite meal. There are times when I am satisfied with junk food, but not all that often!
